3 hours wait to see him and he's ignoring the situation and schmoozing outside in hallway with 7 full exam rooms all waiting inpatient for him never saw this kind of respond
in New York, NY |
Waited over 1 an hr to see Dr. He apologized for wait, but then took a call. I am a 17 year survivor. Had head and neck radiation. Need to be followed as a result. Once he saw I didn't currently hv cancer he couldn't be bothered with me. I asked him if he wld examine my ears. He said he had patients who had Cancer. I am a 2 time Cancer Survivor. I get everything re: having cancer, being a survivor & LATE side effects. Dr. Urken was the worst Dr. Not thorough. Didn't even try to connect.
in Brooklyn, NY |
I've been to many doctors in my time for many different issues. Dr. Mark Urken is by far the most intelligent, skillful and I believe that he has a sixth sense that no other person I know possesses. I'm so privileged to have Dr. Urken in my life. He saved my life so far on two occasions and I'm forever grateful. Frank Brooklyn
